Although, there is no such thing as the best time of the year to move, there are a few factors that one must consider, before deciding on when to move.

If you have children – Choose Summer

With children, deciding on a time of the year to move is awhole other story.

It is believed that the best time to move with children is during summer; when they are off from school.

This gives you the time to focus on the move, rather than worrying about picking up your kids from school and helping them get their homework done.

In summer, you can further ease your burden and ensure a stress free move, by rolling your child in a camp or registering them for a fun activity. Not only will this keep your child busy, it will also keep them safe during the move.

Moreover, moving in summer also gives your child an opportunity to make friends in the neighborhood, even before they begin their new school.


Oh yes, the weather – #Team Spring

Although, weather is often unpredictable, but it still plays a huge par in deciding what time of the year you should move. There are certain seasons that one shouldn’t even think of moving, let alone consider.

Spring is typically the best time of the year to move, even though they may be a little on the expensive side. Moving during springtime means that you get to avoid the extremely hot summers and the extremely cold winters.


Schedules, Schedules, Schedules

Your schedules play a key role in determining the best time for you to move. If you are working, there is a possibility that your work load is a living hell when it’s near the end of the year. If you have kids, there is no way that you can completely avoid their school calendar, as moving into a brand new school in the middle of the school year can be quite a challenge for you and your child.

Consider doing a lot of research and take your work load, your child’s school calendar and holidays into account, before settling on anything. Statutory holidays and Spring Break might just be your best bet.
